Omilola Oshikoya International successfully held the 3rd edition of its annual conference, ‘Do It Afraid’ on Sunday, 17th December 2017 at the Balmoral Convention Center, Federal Palace Hotel with the theme, The Promise of a Rainbow.
The ‘Do It Afraid’ initiative is a purpose-driven platform spearheaded by Africa’s Premier Wealth Coach, Omilola Oshikoya to encourage and inspire individuals to pursue their goals and dreams in spite of fears.
This year’s theme, the promise of the rainbow was hinged on the current situation in the country which has left many individuals without hope. A rainbow is usually accompanied by a heavy storm or rain and its bright colours is a symbol of optimism.
A rainbow is formed when light is mixed with the rain in a storm. I know many have had a tough year, a tough couple of years or even a tough life. I know many are struggling in their businesses because of the tough economic climate. However, there is a promise of a rainbow in the storm. Every storm has a purpose. All you need to do is let ‘Light’ into your storm and the promised rainbow will appear. It is a promise that will not be broken. For me the Light is Jesus – Omilola Oshikoya, Convener of the Do It Afraid Conference.
